Good job DH! I simply delete Justin T from your list (mentally), but otherwise, OUTSTANDING!

Thank you WT. Coming from the former (and future?) PM, that means a lot. It also means I have bad ears. I assume you would substitute a Cream show?

If I could...sadly, my list is pathetic because I didn't start til 74 (age restriction), AND I was so DEAD set that I simply didn't go to ANY shows by other bands (rare exceptions) the next ten yrs or so...got married, had kids, and didn't go for another ten yrs, and thus, by mid 90s, I started going again, but only to the geezer circuit types (IE, bands I knew from way back).

Thus, I never saw any other bands of note that I love now, BUT could have seen: Clash, THeads, Marley, Police, U2, Btrav, White Stripes (really upset about that--could've seen them twice in early 2000s, and passed).

I really have been a narrow DEAD head for most of my life, but it especially screwed up my youth in the sense of limiting my exposure. Now I can only go to shows with good, comfortable seats, and just can't go that often due to physical limitations, etc.

I was single, had a decent job, and was obsessed. The list barely scratches the surface, and I have the ears to prove it. I am the first of the baby boomers and I just got my first hearing aid.
